Needed Types of Parental Guidance and Cooperation Between Home and School.
Grotberg, Edith H.
Research relating to the role of the home in child development and research on the role of parents as teachers, as well as some recommendations for home/school relationships are discussed as they pertain to the gifted child. Delineated are cognitive factors present in the homes of gifted children (e.g., planned cultural activities, verbal interaction, direct instruction of the child) and affective or emotional factors (e.g., consistency of management and discipline, security and self-esteem of family members, attitude of trust toward the world.) Findings of research on parents as teachers are presented, both for programs which focus heavily on training parents as teachers, and for programs which focus on teaching the child with some parental involvement. (Although each of the two approaches produce positive effects on achievement and language development, results seem to favor the programs with parents used as the primary focus.) Finally, suggestions for home/school relationships are offered, some of which include: homework involving family learning activities, provisions in the schools for the screening and guidance of the gifted, and the establishment of community learning centers. (A bibliography is appended.) (MF)
